The United States Loses $150 Billion Annually in RemittancesMany Americans know very little, if anything, about “remittances,” (also known as “remittance payments”) and how they affect the U.S. economy.

State Sanctuary PoliciesCooperation between federal, state, and local governments is the cornerstone of effective immigration enforcement. State and local law enforcement officers are often the last line of defense against criminal aliens, and are far more likely to encounter illegal aliens during routine job activities than are federal agents.

Immigration Priorities for the 2017 Presidential TransitionWe will not succeed in controlling our borders until elected officials realize that immigration policies must align with America's national interests. Given the series of debacles that have shaken confidence in Washington's ability to act in the public interest, it is imperative that the incoming presidential administration addresses immigration reform from the perspective of its true constituents: the American people.

U.S. Immigration and the EnvironmentExploding U.S. population levels were a primary concern among environmentalists at the birth of the movement in the 1970s, but those roots have all but withered. Unfortunately, the national environmental movement will no longer talk about U.S. population, let alone immigration’s role. Many staff and volunteers for environmental organizations know little of the history and are reluctant to acknowledge the impact of immigration on the nation’s carrying capacity.
